So when (or will) the OMG sell out?

Post by International Incident » Tue Aug 06, 2013 9:39 pm

4000 go on sale - how long will they last?

I was totally wrong on the Main Sale - let's see how wrong I can be this time.

I say they won't sell out...

What say you?

A week, and the resale market in tickets will take a crash. I'm interested to see how much tickets are selling for next week when people realize there's no way they can go and there's now a glut of tickets on the market...

I just hope the guy who posted his ticket above face value here in Seattle on Craigslist, saying "he needs to make money" is unable to get even face value.
Same for the over-priced holiday ticket sellers who still think the peace of mind they had from getting tickets early makes their tickets any more valuable now that they all work exactly the same.

Yup. I was wrong again. I have no idea what time they actually sold out. You all win a prize (well except for me, Eric and jkisha).

It's supply and demand. I think everyone who was looking for a tix went with the OMG sale instead of taking the chance on something that might not be secure.

Now the question is are the OMG tix transferable I don't recall seeing that info.
Eta: ok, I see that they can be transferred. But they can't be split.

No will-call orders can be split in advance. The only way to split them is for the person who's name is on the tickets to show up at the Will Call booth and physically ask for one of them to be held for someone else.
